Crystal Gail Carnahan, 23, is apparently one tough East Texas cookie. Almost exactly one year ago, she was indicted on charges of feloniously assaulting a police officer. And now she stands accused of stabbing two people in a fracas outside a Vidor trailer home that sent a total of three people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Orange County newspaper The Record picks up the tale :

Upon arrival, deputies found two victims, a male 27-year-old Vidor resident and a 34-year-old female Vidor resident in the front yard of the residence, both had been stabbed. The third victim, a 22-year-old man from Vidor, had gotten into a fight with another male at the location and sustained injuries from the fight.

Witnesses told police that two males, one of whom was Carnahan's common-law husband, had gotten into a fight. (In another report, somebody was wielding a baseball bat.) Carnahan allegedly responded by whipping out a blade and stabbing two people on the scene, including a woman.

And it looks like somewhere along the way, somebody made this Crystal Gail's brown eyes black.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
